Welcome back to Cyber Humanity! We've got our shades on and we're ready for a busy summer of cyber.

And what better way to herald our return than with a news story that's been hitting every headline?

Unless you've been living under a rock, you must have heard of the Colonial Pipeline ransomware attack. Basically, ransomware hit pipeline, pipeline got shut down, America entered a state of emergency, and then someone did something about it, and...here we are.

Despite what Paul thinks, there's more to it than that.

Tune in to discover what happens when IT meets OT – and what the DarkSide has to do with it.
